A full-bodied lager with lots of malt and hop character. A touch hoppier than many lagers yet perfectly balanced with lots of fruity hop character and fragrance.

Quite smooth and easy to drink. Strong outdoor smell - wet grass, the inside of a petting zoo. Crisp and clean. A sublte sweet maltiness.

Smells grassy, deep amber, pours a large short lived head. Mild caramel flavour, nutty and roasted malts. Good bitterness, a bit light. Average.

Light amber; grassy, mossy aroma; slightly tinny, cracker-like maltiness; ~24 IBUs hiding underneath earthy overtones. Today’s B.S. quote of the week "tightly fused flavours".

Perfectly clear golden, just the sort you would want to swim through on a warm summer day. The sweet malty aroma could be mistaken for wet feet. Flavours don’t really jump onto the tongue -> pretty bland, but with a bit of patience (Old Taddy deserves it) some fruity hops can be found and mild malts will linger on the palate.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - OCT 22, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2003 Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized white head. The head leaves a fair amount of lacings on the glass. The aroma is malty sweet and grassy, with a hint of hops. Flavor is slightly hoppy with a decent maltiness and a grain-like quality. Good, but probably my least favorite Sam Smith beer.

A little hoppy, yes, and pleasantly malted. Though this beer is somewhat disappointing when you compare it to the phenomenal ales that Sam Smith’s puts out. All in all, it’s a touch crisp and has a head that lingers nicely.

Light gold color. A medium bodied lager. Mild malts and fairly aggressively hopped. Full flavor. Good taste. Clean, crisp and refreshing. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

This lager has a very pretty clear gold appearance, but beyond that it’s not particularly remarkable. The taste isn’t bad, but is somehow lacking. This is my least favorite of Sam Smith’s generally excellent brews.

I did not like the smell at all. It smells like oats and rice. Color is outstanding but the taste is rather bland and tangy. Not what I weas hoping for from this brewer.
